Henry, thank you for your review and we're sorry that our home was not a great fit for you. This is an urban location; however, in the 75+ stays we've hosted, we haven't had other guests make similar complaints regarding noise and lights. We stay at our home often and have hosted guests of all ages, families with small children, business travelers, etc. where this hasn't been an issue. It sounds like expectations were possibly more along the lines of a suburban retreat. We always try to make our guests as comfortable as possible and would've gladly provided temporary blackout shades, eye covers, earplugs or done whatever we could have if given a chance or made aware of these expectations prior to your visit. Our listing does make it very clear that our home is located in an area very close to downtown Denver, with many new restaurants, bars, breweries, art galleries, etc. - indeed, many people choose and enjoy staying here precisely because of the location in this vibrant community. However, we sincerely apologize that your stay was not more enjoyable.
